To start with, being hassled for money by the youth on my walk to the hotel did not start things off well (note on directions: the hotel is on a small street, near a large sign for Riad Aladdin and near the Bali palace). I also found the location to be annoying, as one has to cross too rather chaotic, motorbike-filled streets to walk to the main Jamaa el Fna square, though this is just a 10-minute walk and the location is very convenient to the old palace and some of the city's other sites. I had a top-floor room, and once, the proprietor inadvertently locked the door leading to the top floor, essentially locking me in; this has obvious safety implications.
My room was also warm, as the AC did not seem powerful enough against the Marrakesh heat. The also isn't really a swimming pool here; it's just a decorative pool. While the hosts were very warm and hospitable, there are comparably priced guest houses closer to Jamaa el Fna, and I will probably stay at one of those on my next visit.
The proprietors were very friendly and took a personal interest in their guests' well-being. The building itself is beautiful and the facilities were very nice. The location is convenient to some of the city's palaces, in a neighborhood that I would not otherwise have explored.
